Located on a 400 acre high-elevation nature preserve located in the Potomac Highlands of West Virginia, Experience Learning serves as an outdoor wilderness retreat and camp site for visitors to Spruce Knob. Through collaboration with the Woodlands Development Group, our team was brought in to help expand services and facilities of the campgrounds to better accommodate for guests and future visioning of the organization. Over the course of a three-day workshop, our team toured the site and met with local staff and Board of Trustee members to align goals, strategies, and development plans of the organization. A site audit report was drafted to offer improvements on bettering the visitor experience, and designs for an outdoor pavilion and additional dormitory buildings were proposed to address the needs of the group and help plan for its future success.
